In a scathing interview Professor Francis Fukuyama says Angela Merkel only cares about approval ratings and has hardly achieved anything for Europe.

Speaking to Die Welt, the Stanford University professor discusses the dangers of extremists to the survival of mankind and says the biggest threat is the rise of populism due to weak European leadership.

He said: “The jihadist ideology only has few followers. Of course it poses a serious threat, but the greatest threat to the survival of our democracy is a different one. It lies in ourselves.”

When questioned on what he meant, Professor Fukuyama said: “The fear driven by loss of confidence of our citizens in our own institutions.

“This way populism, which promises potentially lethal measures, can grow.

“Unfortunately this is the result of a disturbing lack of leadership that currently exists in Europe.”
